    Thanks, I'll let him know tomorrow And yeah he is suuuch a big boy

    He used to be VERY high maintenance.. had to check on him 3-4 times a day to clean his feet (they were awful..) and feed him (skin and bones) and exercise him because he was a loon...

    Happy we're past that but he does love his rides.

    Yours sounds cute though, haha. Gotta love her personality plus it gives you more chances to spend time with her, which is always nice :)

    Oh yes she usually likes when I show up. She knows my car and waits at the gate for me, although sometimes she gives me a look then decides it's my day to work and walks as far away as possible.

    I still have to feed her everyday. I just wish she would gain a little more weight already, but she probably fears the extra feed would stop so she won't gain those last few pounds.

    Seeing her everyday also helped a lot with training and trust issues as she was an absolute nut case when I adopted her. Poor girl is covered in scars all over her legs, I can only imagine what happened.

    I'm glad she has you :)

    I can relate though.. Sky has spur marks all down his back, down his hind, and on his sides. Very sad :/

    Hey Susan, how do you like that fly sheet? I was looking at possibly getting a Saxon one.

    I think fly masks just make them look sooooo cute.

    It doesn't fit her VERY wide chest well. I have to limit her time in it.
    It also rubs the TWH and my KMSH if left on. I guess a chesty or limit their time in it.

    Aw darn, that probablly won't work then as I have to put her gear on at 5:30am and I can't get back out there until 4:30 pm after work. Oh well so far the flys only go for her legs.

    Well, in keeping with the spirit of this thread, Lacey just dragged me out of my house, IN A THUNDERSTORM, because she didn't have a blanket on.

    I almost died.

    She was thrilled (all nickery and snuggly).

    I don't think she realizes that if I die, all her special care basically dies with me - she might actually have to suck it up like a normal horse!!

    The things we do! Hahaha

    My special girl after I cleaned her up today.
    She went to a big girl arena and rode like a champ.
